Support you Local Bike Shop.


Alright. No one has spokes in this town. Apparently people don’t build there own wheels. I called three bike stores and the skate park shop. One offered to order spokes for a $1.20 each, thats about $45 for a wheel, the skate park said they could get them for $20 for 50 and then an additional $7 for nipples. the other two bike stores didn’t have the length I was looking for and one did not even have any spokes in stock. Am I doing something unreasonable by building my own front wheel?
